In Memoriam: Pope John Paul II the Great

One year ago today, April 2nd, our beloved late Pope JPII the Great, passed away. As I had written before, it was him who brought me 'back'; it was his writings which got me interested in the Church and its teachings after many years of wandering and spiritual aridity. May he always intercede for us the Church Militant.

Today we pray for the repose of his soul and for the cause of his canonization. Santo Subito!

Lux aeterna luceat eis, Domine. Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis.

Here are some of His famous quotes I like....

Famous Quotes:

It is legitimate and necessary to ask oneself if this [gay marriage] is not perhaps part of a new ideology of evil, perhaps more insidious and hidden, which attempts to pit human rights against the family and against man.

[Abortion is] extermination which has been allowed by nothing less than democratically elected parliaments where one normally hears appeals for the civil progress of society and all humanity.

Young people are threatened... by the evil use of advertising techniques that stimulate the natural inclination to avoid hard work by promising the immediate satisfaction of every desire.

Humanity should question itself, once more, about the absurd and always unfair phenomenon of war, on whose stage of death and pain only remain standing the negotiating table that could and should have prevented it.

I miss him so much....
